Some views of the attendees at the Expo

Dear John,

Your Sales and Marketing Expo was, without reservation, the best expo at which I've ever exhibited—and I exhibit at a minimum of one a month—and have done so for 3 years.

It was very well planned, organized, and a productive networking and prospecting event. The part I liked the best was that, although there were four of us manning the booth, we were busy visiting with potential customers all the time. The company management crowd you drew was magnificent. So often at trade shows, we find that decision makers coming by our booth are few and far between.

Please feel free to give my name and number, 1-800-992-1377, out to anyone who wants to visit with a reference about the benefits of exhibiting as I'll be happy to share my positive, bottom line experiences with them.

Dear John,

In April, 2003, we participated in your Sales, Marketing & Publicity EXPO and were very pleased with the results. As an exhibitor, I had a positive experience working with you and your organization. It was easy to find our booth location and setup our display before the show opened.

Your pre-show advertising and marketing brought many attendees which we would never have met with our own marketing campaigns. I was personally impressed with the large turnout and got great exposure with qualified prospects. I met decision makers that eventually turn into good customers.

I look forward to your next expo and will be an exhibitor again.

This was a great experience and well worth the minimal cost.

Hi John,

I do a fair amount of exhibiting. I've never had so many great conversations with people connected to my profession as I did at the Sales, Marketing and Publicity Expo. It usually takes time for networking to "gel," but I got a call immediately after the show to start working on a new project.

NMOA at the Minnesota Small Business Expo

Dear John,

Of the 24 sponsors and partners who contributed their support to the 6th annual Minnesota Small Business Expo & Conference, you and the NMOA were among the most valuable. In addition to having a presence at the Expo as a small business resource, you provided invaluable networking and preshow promotion which translated into additional exhibitors and attendees. We appreciate your contribution and look forward to the continuation of our partnership.
